What about wolf hybrids? Shouldn’t a hybrid between a wolf and dog get the best of both worlds? Maybe theoretically, but not realistically. While some hybrids—the ones with the most dog-like characteristics—can sometimes make great family pets, others—the more wolf-like ones— are a big risk.
Why are wild animals dangerous to keep as pets? For one, they are not behaviorally adapted to living with humans. See what a 40 year study involving undomesticated commercial farm foxes reveals about domestication.
